Cheese Biscuits

These cheese biscuits are just delicious, healthy and super easy to make. They are one of my favorite snacks anytime, by itself or along with the soup. So much better than those puffy store-bought processed junk in a can! You won't believe how simple ingredients can make something so tasty!

Recipe adapted from 100 Days of Real Food

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder (aluminum free)

  • 1 tsp garlic powder or 1 clove fresh pressed garlic

  • 1 cup freshly grated mozarella, jack or cheddar cheese

  • 1/2 cup milk ( I use whole)

  • 1/2 cup melted butter



Preheat the oven to 375 *F. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, garlic, salt. Add the cheese. Slowly pour in melted butter and milk and combine. Do not over-mix.

Drop about 12-15 tablespoons of the batter onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown. You can top them with more cheese if you like. I used half cheddar, half mozarella and then parmesan on top. Cheese biscuits are best when served warm. But they can last in an airtight container for up to 4 days.



About the cheese I use: I always buy a block of cheese (organic if possible) and shred or cut it myself. When you buy cheese that is already shredded, it contains unnecessary additives that we do not need to eat like cellulose, calcium sulfate, modified corn starch, silica or potato starch.

Cellulose is an anti-caking agent, that prevents cheese from clumping. It is basically a wood pulp and even though, food companies claim that there is no harm in eating wood pulp, this one is chemically treated to extract the fiber and I don't think it is good for you.

Calcium sulfate is a white powder made of processed rock and silica is another name for purified sand.

Also the cheese that is already shredded doesn't melt as well as the one you shred yourself. So it is definitely worth of doing the extra little work, if you care about your health.
